O Clavis David!

O clavis David, et sceptrum domus Israel: qui aperis, et nemo claudit; claudis, et nemo aperit: veni, et educ vinctum de domo carceris, sedentem in tenebris.

[O Key of David, and scepter of the house of Israel, who opens and no man shuts, who shuts and no man opens: come, and lead forth the captive who sits in the shadows from his prison.]

May the Key of David come and ransom captive Israel; open the doors that lock us inside ourselves and our own prisons. Open the door to yourself, so that we may be freed from all that stains us and keeps us prisoner.
